On many boats coolers are kept under leaning posts, gunwales or other hard to reach areas. Cooler Slides make it easy to load and unload the cooler. The slides are made of non-corrosive starboard material with stainless steel spring latches which secures the slide in the retracted position. It is designed to be simple and functional, but allows better access to your cooler. The space required to install the coolers is the length of the cooler plus 2" inches and the height of the cooler plus an 1 1/4".

Always scary when you drill holes into a brand new boat. This product is OUTSTANDING. Great quality, highly recommend!
Installed in just minutes. Under my Taco Neptune II Leaning post. Fit my igloo (75 qt?) cooler just fine (it's 15" on the bottom), so I used the 15.5" slides. The slides are a bit pricey, but I really like the design and how they work once I installed them. And the slim design really helps. I only have about an 1/8 inch left on each side between the cooler slide and the leaning post legs. If I would have gone with a different cooler slide, it would not have fit. It also raised the cooler enough so it clears the hatch door that is directly under the leaning post. This worked perfectly. They'd be 5 stars if they weren't so expensive. I paid $269.95.
cooler slide for narrow spaces!
I have a 65-quart YETI that barely fits under my lean post (Everglades 243). I found that most cooler slides require an extra 4-5 inches width to clear the locking mechanisms usually built on the sides of the slide. The Birdsall design was the only slide I could find to fit narrow spaces, adding only about 1 iinch of width to the cooler. The drawback was there was nothing holding the cooler down other than the sides of the unit (which is a problem in rough water). I added some rubber tie downs (similiar to what you'd use on a truck hood). Install of the entire unit took about 1 hour. Pictures available upon request
